Why We Love This

The SmartPak Breakaway Halter with COOLMAX® Padding is one smart barn staple! It features COOLMAX® padding on the noseband helps keep your horse cool, dry, and comfortable when the temperatures heat up. It also has a leather breakaway feature on the crown that’s designed to break under undue pressure. The crown piece is also adjustable, along with the chin strap, giving you the ability to create a great fit for your horse. Plus, this halter also offers a heavy nylon webbed noseband and cheek pieces that are durable and available in a variety of colors to show off your style. Finally, the snap closure at the throatlatch makes it easy to take on and off without having to adjust the crown piece every time. Many horse owners choose halters like this one with a breakaway feature because of the peace of mind they can provide while the horse is on cross-ties, in a trailer, or in turnout. 

Imported.

Please note, all breakaway halters will release at different degrees of pressure under different circumstances.

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    SmartPak Breakaway Halter with COOLMAX® Padding is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke pretty quickly The little screw popped out within two weeks all on its own. It wasn't even on my horse at the time. I found it and put it back in. Within another week it popped out again, this time while my horse was wearing it while on the crossties. He was standing stock still and it just slid off him. I'm lucky he's such a good boy - he just stood there with a confused look on his face. Will not buy this type of halter again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Both broke in less than a day Returning these. Bought 2 and both broke the first day on both horses. So disappointed because wanted the coolmax feature.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart second day There’s so much to love about this halter except the screw fell out the second day.
    Date published: 2019-06-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great turnout halter I have a TB that wears her halter all day when in turnout. She is very prone to rub marks so I got this halter for summer turnout (I have the smartpak breakaway halter with the fleece padding for winter turnout - my horse is spoiled). So far this is great. The breakaway piece seems very secure and my horse has worn it for weeks now everyday with no issues. I have always had the breakaway style of halters and make sure to have a replacement leather safety piece on hand at all times. I appreciate the price and that it is fully adjustable on the crown and chin.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality halter I like these for trailering. Well made and really nice looking. However, these are so. If on all my horses from the thoroughbred with a long face to the dishy faced paint. The nose band hangs low even when buckled up to the last hole or second hole for the crown. I’ve had to buckle the nose band way down too. Then there is too much extra length. If you have a big warm blood type the horse size will be fine. I have three stock breeds and a thoroughbred and a cob size would probably have fit better.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed. These are so beautiful. But the bolt came out in less than a week and now it's useless.
    Date published: 2019-05-17
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh I bought this as a turnout halter for my cob size 30 year old. It fit too large and felt very cheaply made. I am going to return.
    Date published: 2019-05-03
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Breakaway lasted 1 day Great fit but leather breakaway with very short screws is useless. Screws fell out 1st day my horse wore this halter.
    Date published: 2019-04-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best halter made The best feature of this halter is the cool max padding. It doesn’t leave those annoying rub lines like all other breakaway halters!
